Back for more SPGU action on the ice, 2021-22 SP Game Used Hockey piles on the memorabilia. The Upper Deck NHL set is also known for the Authentic Rookies line.

One difference is found in the expected box output. The 2020-21 edition averaged four hits (autographs and/or relics) per box. In 2021-22, each box should have one autograph or premium relic along with three cards that can be relics and/or Purity inserts.

2021-22 SP Game Used Hockey Base / Authentic Rookies

Typical of many UD releases, 2021-22 SP Game Used Hockey is anchored by a multi-tiered base set that expands with multiple parallels, including jersey relics and autographs. The series includes base (#1-100), Authentic Legends (#101-120) and Authentic Rookies (#121-200) cards. Each true base card is limited to the player's jersey number.

While Burst was the main parallel style used for the base set last year, '21-22 moves to Fragment parallels.

2021-22 SP Game Used Hockey Base Parallels Breakdown

Base (#1-100)

  • Base - #'d to jersey #
  • Red Fragment - #/265
  • Gold Fragment - #/25
  • Purple Fragment - #/5
  • Green Fragment - 1/1

Authentic Legends (#101-120)

  • Base - #'d to jersey #
  • Red Fragment - #/265
  • Gold Fragment - #/25
  • Purple Fragment - #/5
  • Green Fragment - 1/1
Authentic Rookies (#121-200)

  • Base - #'d to jersey #
  • Red Fragment - #/265
  • Gold Fragment - #/25
  • Purple Fragment - #/5
  • Green Fragment - 1/1

In most cases, the final card in the base print run has an autograph. So, if a player wears the #97 jersey, such as Connor McDavid, his base card that is serial-numbered 97/97 would have an added signature.

As mentioned, all three subsets come in several different hit forms that can feature relics, autographs or auto relics.

2021-22 SP Game Used Hockey Inserts

Collectors can look for new inserts in 2021-22 SP Game Used Hockey, as well. This includes 2003-04 Retro Rookie (#/999) with a Gold (#/50) parallel and 2005-06 Retro Rookie (#/999), also with a Gold (#/25) parallel. While these are throwback designs, they aren't all specific to hockey.

The debuting Purity inserts combine with relics to average three per box. Utilizing a "unique tech design," the set offers veterans (1:7 packs), legends (1:12 packs) and rookies (1:12 packs). Each card also has Gold (#/150) and Platinum (#/35) editions.
